12oz bottle. Bottled 11/19/12. Served in a Cigar City snifter.
Pours deep chestnut with a half finger cream head that leaves lace trail where it rests against the glass.
Smells of citrus and floral hops with sugary bread backing it up and sweet berries as it warms.
Taste is a nice balance of sweet bready malts and hops. Toffee, floral, citrus, sweet bread, berries and sugar. Very little alcohol presence.
Slick but almost creamy medium feel with a decent bit of carbonation that rests on the base of the tongue. Berries and hops in the finish.
One of my favorite red ales. My wife rocks for finding me a couple bottles in Florida over her Christmas break. It borders an IPA but the malty notes of toffee and berry help it stand apart. Good stuff here and well worth a try.

Fresh from Florida with a date of 2/18/14
A - Pours out a cloudy light red with a bunch of hop sediment flouting around. Has a two finger frothy off yellowish off white head. Well carbonated.
S - Hops come through on the nose with a piney citrus follow with a bready sweet maltiness and some earthyness.
T - Sweet malt breadiness, caramel, followed by the piny citrus earthyness that drys out. Balanced from malts to hops and pretty smooth and enjoyable.
M - Medium to full bodied smooth with nice carbonation. Dry on the mouth leaving you wanting more.
O - Very enjoyable red ale that is balance with pronounce malt and hop profiles. Not a beginner beer for a red ale coming in at over 7 % abv.

Disclaimer: I've mostly been on a hop kick with IPAs & DIPAs.
However, this was an excellent red ale. Fantastic smell and with great mouth feel and taste.
Found a 6-er of this 3 days old and figured I would finally try it...glad I did.
A refreshing ale and a good benchmark for this style, though I'm not that prevalent in this style currently.
